And you thought Mythic progress was short!


Well, the Mythic race was over very quickly and it seems Emerald Nightmare is hitting those "old raid" benchmarks at a much more accelerated pace in several categories. While the first boss isn't quite soloable yet, there has been a 3 man kill, featuring Disc Priest DPS!

Just a heads up, there is some very explicit language at the very end so, as DBM would say, beware.

Something to note is that the kill was still very close to failing as you can see the enrage popping at the very (not when the addon says so, but only the last few seconds) end as the tank starts getting very high damage at that point, so it wasn't quite as big a walk in the park as the video made it seem.

As someone who still sees people die on Normal Nythendra in pugs this video makes me happy and sad at the same time, anyone else have a tragic first boss-wipe story to share?

Proves how trivial the fight actually is, yet how so many still fail on this encounter is beyond me.

The encounter isn't hard at all, but the three classes they used weren't random.  A Blood DK was used because of it's self-healing, which lessened the healing required on him.  Then you have the Disc Priest, chosen because of the class's ability to do a decent amount of DPS while keeping the other 2 members alive.  Lastly, the Hunter.  The Hunter is the one that is least set in stone (and you can see that in the beginning of the video there was a Monk on the DPS meter instead).  This definitely isn't the only tank/healer comp that could do this (leaving out the DPS slot, as almost all classes/specs can fit in, though the best options are ranged DPS), but it probably (without trying for myself) is the best.  A Resto Druid or Mistweaver Monk might be able to work instead of a Disc Priest.  A Resto Druid would have to stance dance in order to heal.  As far as tanks go, a Pror Warrior would be the best alternative to a Blood DK.  All tanks can do around the same DPS, but only a Prot Warrior would be able rival/beat a Blood DK in overall survivability/self-healing.  A Prot Warrior + Mistweaver Monk would likely be the best alternative (again, without testing for myself).  The thought here is to have the MW statue Soothing Mist on the Warrior constantly, while throwing out the occasional Renewing Mists and Effuse for flash healing.

      Primal Obliterum can only upgrade new Patch 7.3 crafted items to item level 935. Pre-7.3 items can only be upgraded to 900 with Obliterum.
      To upgrade Obliterum into Primal Obliterum, you will need 1 Obliterum & 1 Primal Sargerite. Another Primal Sargerite will be consumed when you upgrade an item with Primal Obliterum by 5 ilvls.
      New 7.3 Crafted Gear
      Only the following items can be upgraded to 935. It doesn't matter if you craft older items after 7.3 goes live, they won't go beyond 900.

      Obliterum has been a steady gold maker during Legion, but what's the future of crafted items in Patch 7.3?
      Patch 7.3 added the following strings to the game:
      "SPELL_FAILED_CUSTOM_ERROR_345","This item requires basic Obliterum to upgrade."
      "SPELL_FAILED_CUSTOM_ERROR_346","This item requires Primal Obliterum to upgrade."
      We did some testing on PTR and old crafted pre-7.3 gear (ilvl 835/850) can be upgraded with Obliterum up to ilvl 900. You can't use Obliterum to upgrade the new 7.3 crafted items. Instead, you will need to use Primal Obliterum that can upgrade it up to ilvl 935.
      Primal Obliterum is forged by combining a new Blood of Sargeras called Primal Sargerite and good old Obliterum. Primal Sargerite can be transmuted by Alchemists (Transmute: Primal Sargerite) at the cost of 25 Bloods of Sargeras. There are various sources of Primal Sargerite (world quests, shoulder enchant etc). The item's required for many new recipes, so a person would be forced to have Alchemy and that's not a design Blizzard would choose.
      The good news is Obliterum will still be profitable in 7.3 and if you plan to sell Primal Obliterum, you will need to combine Obliterum with Primal Sargerite.

      Many players are still waiting for Patch 7.3 to go live, before they complete the Mage Tower Challenge for their Artifact weapon appearance, because with increasing item level, the challenge becomes more trivial. If you have your appearance unlocked and think how good you are, you probably haven't heard of Muddymonk!
      The player wrote on reddit that he finished Mage Tower Challenges for each class / specialization - that's a total of 36 challenges.

      Redditor eke00372 uploaded a video of Argus the Unmaker from PTR. Blizzard opened Antorus for testing and a guild was able to access the raid's final boss, even though testing should have ended with Aggramar. The fight is still very unfinished. The boss can be CCed and isn't even an elite.
      After defeating Aggramar, you talk to Magni and get teleported to the Seat of the Pantheon.
      The fight takes place in an area called Seat of the Pantheon.

      Multiple rewards await after you defeat Legion's final boss.
